Farmhouse Totes – Farmhouse Friday

If I asked you to name one piece of decor in your home that not only looks great, but is functional as well, what would your answer be?  #1 on my list has to be totes. They are hard-working and can be used in any room in the house, from the bathroom, to the kitchen, to the craft room – even the garage. You can buy vintage totes, upcycle a thrift store tote, or make them from scratch. My favorite {Read More}

Using Natural Elements and Vintage Decor in Autumn Decorating

I can hardly believe it’s October already, but the calendar doesn’t lie, so it must be true.  I’m afraid to blink, or it will be Christmas!  As much as I love the cheery red decor  in my kitchen, it looked very summery, and I waited a little too long to bring it in.  It’ll be perfect again when it’s closer to Christmas, but in the meantime, I wanted some autumn decor in the kitchen. I don’t have room to store boxes {Read More}

Flea Market Finds

I got up bright and early last Saturday to hit the flea market with my husband, only to find my husband was already awake, but feeling lousy.  We waited for awhile, but he still felt awful and went back to bed, but bless my oldest son’s heart – he went with me.  I haven’t gone to a single flea market all summer, and I’d never been to this particular one, so I was pretty excited. He really wasn’t interested in {Read More}

Little Child’s Chair

A few weeks ago, when I went to Arkansas to bring my college son home for Christmas break, we stopped at an antique store along the way, and I found this little child’s chair sitting outside the shop.

Vintage School Desk Makeover

    I’ve been given several old school desks  over the years, from people whose kids had outgrown them.  I often repurpose parts of them, like the antique alphabet school page sign I made from the top of another desk, but this one didn’t have any parts that were easily removable, so it would get a makeover instead. All in all, it was in decent condition, but a child had scratched some words into the top of the desk, and the “greige” color {Read More}
